How to Create Mirror Images with stamps 

Today's inspiration came from a spontaneous demo I did as my card class yesterday was wrapping up.  We were discussing how to do mirror images, and I decided to do a quick demo.  I grabbed the nearest stamp pad, which turned out to be Fresh Fig, a silicon mat and the flower image from Humming Along stamp set.  This morning, the mirror images I created was still on my table, so I grabbed some Blends, colored the image and decided I liked it enough to turn it into a card.

How to create a mirror image with your stamps

Creating a mirror image is easy.  Simply ink up your stamp, and stamp the image onto your Silicon Craft Sheet.

Huff on your Silicone Craft Sheet image to keep the ink wet, and quickly cover it with the cardstock you want to use for your images.  

Press your cardstock onto the inked image

Using the backside of your clear block, rub your block over the inked image on your silicone mat to transfer the inked image from your silicone mat to your cardstock.

Turn over your cardstock and you'll see your mirror image.  Ink up your stamp again and stamp the image as you would normally, next to your mirror image.  Clean your Silicon Craft Sheet by running it under running water in your sink.  If you don't have a Silicon Craft Sheet, you can also use your Stamparatus Plates to first stamp, and then transfer your image.

Once your have both images, color your images.  I used Light Daffodil Delight and Light Granny Apple Greens Blends Markers to color the flower and leaves.  Then I used a Light Crumb Cake Blends Marker to color the flower centers.  

I created a horizontal version and  vertical version of the card, and decide to use the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.

The basecard for today's card is Daffodil Delight.  Then a layer of Whisper White.  Then a layer of Gingham Gala 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper.  Then a banner of Basic Black. 

The image layer is matted with Basic Black, and the images are stamped on Whisper White cardstock.  The images are colored with Light Daffodil Delight Blends Markers and Light Granny Apple Green Markers. Then Light Crumb Cake Blends Markers were used for the flower centers.            


I stamped the sentiment from Humming Along in Fresh Fig ink, and then added butterflies from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and coordinating punch.  The butterflies are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Light Daffodil Delight Blends Marker and Light Granny Apple Green Blends Marker. The butterflies are popped up on Mini Dimensionals cut in half.  

I'm so happy that the Butterfly Gala and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch will carry over to the new catalog.  But purchase this bundle now so you still get the 10% bundle saving.  While the stamp set and punch are carrying over to the new catalog as individual items, the new-bundle price goes away after June 3. 

Need a copy of the upcoming catalog?  If you don't have a current Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would love to be your demonstrator.  Contact me, so I can add you to my new catalog mailing list, which I'm finalizing tomorrow (April 30).  New catalogs will arrive towards the end of May, giving you time to put together your Shopping List so you'll be ready to order June 4.

Shelli's Very Special May Paper Pumpkin Kit

Stampin' Up! and Shelli Garner, Stampin' Up!'s Founder, created a very special May Paper Pumpkin Kit for us.  And I know You're going to love it.  But you must order it by May 10.

To learn more, click here.

We made a sample from May Paper Pumpkin kit at On Stage, and I immediately went into my Paper Pumpkin subscription and upped the number of kits I have coming.  You can do the same by going to and logging in with your password, if you already have a subscription.

This kit will likely sell out, so if you like the sneak peek you see in the video below, be sure to order now rather than waiting for the May 10 order deadline.  Can't see the video below?  Use this link to view it on YouTube.

This kit is designed by Shelli Garner, one of the founder of Stampin' Up!.  She has a personal style that I've been attracted to for many, many years.   

What is Paper Pumpkin Kits?  Paper Pumpkin kits are monthly craft kits that you can be purchased in 1 month - 3 month - 6 month or 12 month subscriptions.  You receive a different kit each month, along with all of the materials needed to complete your projects, except scissors and glue.  You'll love how fast these kits go together, if you don't have a lot of time.  And your finished kits means you'll have lovely cards or projects on hand when you need a card rather than making a late-night run to the card shop because of a last-minute need.

These kits include the papers, die cuts, embellishments, an exclusive stamp set and a mini ink pad -- everything needed to complete the kit.  This month's kit is a Spring card kit with four different card designs with pre printed envelopes.  It comes in a one-of-a-kind beautiful vintage-designed box.  This is one Paper Pumpkin kit you don't want to miss.  Order now.
